I Went for a Walk + Play Date

As you may know, since the release of I Went for a Walk, Greg and I have created a kids music band called Play Date!  Recently our album Imagination was awarded a 2014 Parents’ Choice Award, and I Went for a Walk was given a 2014 Child’s Magazine award!  We really enjoy combining these two programs, especially at schools and libraries to bring a musical, fun, interactive and inspiring time to everyone involved.  We tend to be more active on our Play Date website, so be sure to check in with us there!  Here, you’ll find lots of info about I Went for a Walk and teacher guides, suggested lesson plans, and details about hosting Play Date or an Author/Illustrator Program at your school or library.   Thanks for stopping by and we hope to hear from you!  Keep letting life inspire you, it’s a wondrous world out there!  xo  Shanti & Greg
